. now, looks like elizabeth warren has taken a lead! she's up 47.2% to 45.8% and clear politics average of all of the different polls. so that appears to be a real lead. well one of the dumbest lines of attack i've ever seen is scott brown's folks have been going to for a long time now. she lied about being indian. we got her. i don't know what you got her on. she's not lying. her mother is part cherokee and she's also part delaware indian. so where's the lie? i don't get it. ha ha, she took advantage. no, she never took advantage of it. what a weird weird campaign. now when you do that, by the way, it also shows i've got nothing on her. she's actually gonna fight wall street. she is going to represent you. so i'll make up some nonsense but it gets worse. so his staffers including staffers like greg casey and constituent service counsel richard, local republican activist garrett got together and did this at a brown event. yeah hey we got it. got it? because you're indian or you're not indian. they think

and make native war advice to elizabeth warren's cherokee defense. brown has not confirmed or denied it but here's what he said. >> this is the first time i'm hearing of it, but i know we had a lot of rallies. so i don't know what you're specifically referring to, but if you're saying that, certainly that's not something i condone. it's somethingly something that if i am aware of ill, i'll check into it. but the real issue here is and the real offense is the fact that professor warren checked the box. she said that she was white, and then she checked the box saying she was native american and then she changed her profile in the law directly once she attained her tenure. that's quite offensive to native americans and something that she should release in her records. >> doubled down in a commercial and i for the live of me can't figure out why they're debating this in massachusetts and why he's debating this. >> what i would add is that elizabeth warren within 24 hours had her own ad which suggest thad the war rinne campaign doesn't want to just leave it out there, they they're concern

describing the staffers as down right racist. senator brown challenged his opponent elizabeth warren's claim she is of native-american heritage. she used the minority status for professional eastern personal gain. last night brown's campaign released a statement offering regrets and sent out an apology. senator brown has spoken to his entire staff, including the individuals involved in this unacceptable behavior -- and issued them one and only warning that this type of conduct will not be tolerated. he regrets that members of his staff did not live up to the high standards that the people of massachusetts expect and deserve. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton is suggesting that this month's attack on the u.s. consulate in lib why may have had ties to an al qaeda affiliate in the region. secretary clinton's comments which came during a special u.n. meeting add to the administration's changing explanation about what happened the night four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya were killed. initially officials said the attack was part of a protest about an obscure youtube video t

one issue up there is painting elizabeth warren as native american. of course, she helped maybe create that issue, but is this the issue that is going to help him win? >> i think this is the beginning of a long campaign that he is going to run. the fact fors on the ground all argue in warren's favor. there are going to be -- >> bill: democratic registration -- >> exactly 7 or 8,000 new voters who didn't vote for scott brown back in the special election in 2010, because they just didn't come out to vote. now he has to do something to undermine her credibility. at the moment the polls are showing elizabeth warren on a pretty strong rise. so scott brown has to do something to change this race. and i think elizabeth warren demonstrated it is an issue of concern for her. she herself went up with a response ad hours after scott brown did, which tells me they believe that is something of concern. >> bill: yeah. and she had addressed it before, but she can't take any chances. all right. reid wilson, thanks for your time this morning. and thanks for all of those fre

-read opinion page. katrina vanden heuvel in "the washington post" writes this. elizabeth warren, the people's champion. >> i'm sorry, go ahead. go ahead. no, it's all right. i was just thinking about a joke i heard yesterday. go ahead. >> throughout the campaign, mark halperin, warren has delivered an unabashed populist message. she first made the common-sense case that no one succeeded alone. that successful businesspeople depend on what we've built together, an educated work force, roads and transport to deliver their products, a rule of law vital to working markets. this isn't a radical notion, but when adopted and badly phrased by president obama, it sparked the frenzied republican "we built it" campaign. warren will focus on the core issues and ask massachusetts voters to decide who is on their side. and if she wins, she'll not only lead a new generation of progressive reformers into the senate, but also begin to teach democrats how to fight for working people once more." mark? >> vanden heuvel, not ratner, on that. >> not ratner. >> we don't have ratner here to dispute. >> just to gam

what he was trying to -- the point he was trying to make. i think elizabeth warren probably did it better early on but you do need to be careful. in some ways it's stating the obvious. government has a role. they have infrastructure, education, we all need that to perform our jobs, our start-up businesses, whatever. but, you know, is it going the next step and saying, well, you know, no matter how successful you are we're going to take some of it. that's what people were hearing. that's where the president needs to be careful. i do think that that theme did resonate. >> you could imagine, you're a person of -- a perfect person to channel this. you can imagine a very effective conservative -- republican message that was also kind of antiwall street? >> yeah. i wish we did. >> yes. exactly. >> i'm not into wall street. independent of wall street. >> the question is why has -- >> that's one of the great mysteries. i think this is where right and left should agree. i think this is not ideological. these guys are still threats to our financial system. they should stand on their own t
